Unrelenting advocates for our children’s future
The Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, CA is experiencing a gradual resurgence. This vibrant and culturally diverse community is a wellspring of civic advocacy and innovation. Development projects, community organizing, and policy advancement are at work repainting a disparaging outlook and sowing hope for future generations.
The people of the Tenderloin are conscientious agents of change, guarding its growth against the downsides of gentrification to ensure the preservation of affordable housing, a reimagined future for those that are homeless and an equitable, brighter life for all of its residents.
However, even in its alchemy, old paths have remained unchanged. The Tenderloin has yet to entirely shed the skin of a more sordid past. Segments of this neighborhood threaten locals with violence, open drug use and sales, and prostitution. The persistent presence of these adversities urges an unrelenting struggle to, at least, shield the most vulnerable — our children.
